Create a gardening 50th gift basket from gardening catalogs, seeds of plants you particularly like, tools, and a stepping stone with a suitable thought.

You could put a favorite tender quote of theirs on it colored gold to match this golden anniversary gift basket, or the date of their wedding.

To complete the theme, add different sized pictures in different frames to the bag. You can put a wedding photo in a gold frame to complete that golden anniversary basket!

Is square dancing an interest of that special couple? You could take a galvanized tub and fill it with a couple colorful, full petticoats that are worn under the women’s skirts. You could include in the 50th wedding anniversary gift basket a couple string ties, something popular with the men! A matched pair of his and her cowboy hats would add a nice touch to the 50th anniversary gift basket with a square dance theme. And when they’re not actually dancing they could wear the t-shirts that proclaim their love of square dancing that you’ve included in this most unique of 50th anniversary gift baskets! If it’s something they’ve expressed in an interest in, make it a beginners square dancing golden anniversary gift basket with an instructional DVD or two or even a membership to a local square dance club.
Or you could buy a ready made 50th anniversary gift basket. Some of the special items you might want in it would be things from the year they were married. Something very different and special would be adding a set of circulated coins, like a penny, dime, quarter and half dollar from that year. Perhaps a picture frame with the year and a sentiment on it and a DVD of the events of that year added into the 50th wedding anniversary gift basket would add to the highlights of that year they were married. There are many interesting things that could be included in the 50th anniversary gift basket like a CD of music from that year, candies that were popular the year they were married or trivia playing cards.
